About                                              

Sunrise fanfare was written for the Asheville Symphony Youth Orchestra at the very end of the year in 2017. My good friend Brian Garland asked me to write a piece for their brass festival. It is my first piece written for a young ensemble. The piece works between two themes, the first introduced by the trombones and tubas in the opening, and the second by the first trumpets. The piece quickly gains speed as the ideas begin to overlap. It erupts into a blazing finale, ending similar to how it began.
